In what once was the heart of the rainy city Seattle, Pioneer Square hosts Upstream Music Fest + Summit, where you can have the opportunity to walk about the historic district and hear the sounds of over two hundred artist and shows. With multiple venues and stages throughout the area, a walk through a usually quiet neighborhood will instead be full of sights, sounds, and excitement. Step into small venues or camp out at the main stage for a weekend of incredible music.
The festival is full of music, but now you need to know about Summit. At WaMu Theater fans, artists, collaborators, and industry experts will meet to discuss questions and themes that will touch on the struggles of the industry as well as how best to succeed. The Summit is meant to help understand and inspire emerging artists to be the best selves they can be while working towards their goals in music.
